The discussion brought together representatives of the Ministry of Social Development, the Ministry of Labour, Migration and Youth, the National Confederation of Employers, the Federation of Trade Unions and social funds.

Senior Social Protection Specialist of the ILO Decent Work Technical Support Team and Country Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia Mariko Ouchi said none of the CIS member-states had ratified the Convention No.102 yet, although it was adopted in 1952.

“Convention No.102 covers nine branches of social security. For ratifying this convention, a firm commitment by the government to improve their national social security system is required. New ILO Social Protection Floors Recommendation No.202 covers health care and three types of basic income guarantee at the national level. Income guarantees include income security for children, elderly people and people who are at working age but cannot engage at work,” she said.
